Shigeru Miyamoto Defends Nintendo’s 2015 Line-up

If you’ve been on social media or visited various message boards you’ll have noticed that a growing number of people aren’t entirely satirised with Nintendo’s holiday lineup this year. There’s a few spin-offs of established franchises and a Star Fox title which hasn’t really resonated with fans. However, Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto has defended the line-up and says that the company is always looking to surprise the fans.

“In terms of Metroid, yes, it wasn’t exactly what fans expected,” Miyamoto agreed. “With Animal Crossing [Happy Home Designer] we have a new type of gameplay but it is still the same franchise – perhaps not along the traditional line of what you expect but what we always try to do is work with the hardware we have.

“If you look across the line-up of what we have for this year we’re using the Amiibo cards, Amiibo, the [Mario Maker] editing tool, two screens. Both the new Metroid and Zelda: Triforce Hero titles are new in terms of their gameplay.

“Even moving on to the year after, we’re always thinking of ways to surprise the audience.”

    1. StarFox? Xenoblade X? And 2015 line-up means everything this year: Splatoon, Majora’s Mask 3D, Super Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Mario Party 10, Mario Tennis Ultra Smash, Yoshi’s Wolly World, Little Battlers eXperience, Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer, Rodea the Sky Soldier, Devil’s Third, Fire Emblem If, Genei Ibun Roku #FE (these two are released this year in Japan), and a lot of more games…

      1. Besides XCX, Pokemon super mystery dungeon, fire emblem if (that’s a 2016 release retard) I really couldn’t care less about any of the games you mentioned. They all sound like shovel ware spinoff garbage!

          1. Starfox zero has terrible graphics, looks empty and barren and overall uninteresting. I’ve never been a star fox fan.

            1. HollowGrapeJ (The Legendary Video Game Master And Anime Wizard)

              It doesn’t have “terrible” graphics. They just don’t look as good as you wish they did.

              1. Yes it does. Compare starfox’s graphics to that of pikmin 3’s and you’ll notice a massive difference. The new world of starfox seems empty and barren, with flat textures and a lack of detail everywhere.

                Also, you’re statement could literally be used to defend any game that looks bad…

                1. HollowGrapeJ (The Legendary Video Game Master And Anime Wizard)

                  Alright, let me reword that. The graphics are not that great but it does not look completely terrible. I’ve seen worse.

                    1. HollowGrapeJ (The Legendary Video Game Master And Anime Wizard)

                      …Well, it doesn’t matter since you said aren’t interested in the game anyway.

                    2. Who gives a crap about graphics though?? Everyone is blowing the whole graphics bull crap out of proportion when online play should be getting all the attention and worry!!.

                    3. No you utter drone, you complain about BOTH the abysmal graphics and the online support because BOTH are serious problems with the game. Unless you eat up whatever Nintendo shits out!

                    4. All the older Wii U tittles look better than most newer tittles. First Nintendo console that doesnt better their visuals over time.

                        1. HollowGrapeJ (The Legendary Video Game Master And Anime Wizard)

                          Honestly, I totally forgot about this argument until you commented.

                        2. And someone speaks the truth AT LEAST!!! Star fox = Crap. The game has been in development since GameCube. They clearly ported the entire thing from the then ideal Wii development into the Wii U. They kept the Wii graphics and decide to focus on the piece of shit tablet. They can’t fix the graphics or the way it looks because the Wii U can’t handle good graphics or the tablet will kill it from trying to run 60 FPS.

                          1. Holy fucking shit. We’ve seen maybe two minutes of gameplay, and you’re already judging?

                            And what the fuck are you all on, anyway? Complaining about Nintendo’s graphics?

                            Nintendo has *never* been about graphics. It’s always been about art style with its main series games.

                            What the fuck would you do if they came out with a super realistic Mario game with amazing graphics?

                            That’s right. You’d complain. Somebody would still complain. Because Mario isn’t, and has never been, realistic.

                            Jesus ‘effing Christ. You’re like parasites.

                            Not every year can be pure gold.

                              1. Yeah since the GameCube did super well being the powerhouse of the generation and got its ass owned.

                                So why make a high power machine that no one will buy?

                                1. The GameCube failed because it used mini disks as opposed to actual DVDs…God, learn some facts before you comment lol.

                                  1. Dude no offense I agree with most of what you say, but pokemon mystery dungeon is most certainly shovelware especially compared to star fox. Side pokemon games are a joke dude.

                                  2. Are you stupid? He defended the 2015 lineup, and I specified that FE:If is a 2015 game in Japan. It was already released. And how can a game sound like “shovelware spinoff garbage”? First, the only spin-offs are Kirby, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, Yoshi, SMT×FE and the Animal Crossing games. What makes you think Splatoon or LBX are spin-offs? smh It does not matter how good/bad the games are, since it is purely subjective. But there are a lot of games released this year, and your (retarded) opinion does not make it shit. Faggot.

                                    1. 1. And what about those who aren’t in Japan then? They don’t get to play fire emblem so why should it count?

                                      2.Splatoon looks boring as hell and, when I take in account the lack of online features such as voice chat, seems extremely unappealing. Overall, I truly think Splatoon is very overrated.

                                      3. I don’t care about that Pokemon ripoff ‘LBX’ or whatever.

                                      1. 2. Match customization is important, too. I hate the forced 2-3 minute time limit for Smash so why should I get Splatoon, who’s main focus is online, which also has that short time limit bullshit.

                                        1. Because splatoon is much faster, and the option to turn off voicechat makes it unfair for those who have to turn it off when facing a team that makes plans against you. You can paint to the other end of the map in less than a minute and,in some cases, in 30 seconds. And Ranked mode is 5 minutes. It would be as if Smash would have any character with the ability to kill at 30%; the time limit is only so that you can still play for the rest of the match. The only problem I have with splatoon is that sometimes team members disconnect. But that is not the game’s fault.

                                          1. Nope. You can’t just include every single game released so you have more to add to your pathetic list. Also, first you say that how “good/bad the games are, since it’s purely subjective” yet you seem sooo defensive over the fact that I pointed out how shit the line up really was.

                                            Quality over quantity fanboy.

                                            1. What you consider as being bad is subjective. The only objective bad thing would be framerate, bad graphics (that hurt your eyes, artstyle being very subjective) and many bugs or bad collision detection(like in Sonic Boom). Defending an overall line-up might include for some games that are for some time only available in Japan, so it does count for some. Splatoon is very fast and works very well on those small maps that have each their own strategy. Voice chat would give unfair advantages for teams that don’t have trolls. And I can say the OP is an ignorant faggot because of stating that LBX is a pokémon rip-off. Battle people with your customizable robot. Clearly pokémon. And you agreeing makes you an ignorant faggot as well.

                                              1. Faggot? Is someone mad they aren’t kissing Nintendo’s ass for leaving out what many feel is an integral feature in online gaming? And unfair? Life isn’t fair! There is always going to be someone at a disadvantage. I guess we should gimp races & tell the faster racers to slow down so the slower ones can keep up because it’s so unfair that they aren’t as fast as the others. If you Nintendo damage controllers want to continue to defend Nintendo’s bullshit for not adding voice chat, it’s called adding two separate online modes: one with voice chat & one without voice chat. There. Everyone wins because then the weak players can play with the other weak players.

                                              2. The Wii U had no games from May to September. Let’s stop being naive. And Xenoblade is the only game worth coming out this year. The Wii U is clearly dead.

                                                1. Hello, the Boss’s ass.
                                                  It’s very good to hear from you.
                                                  I’d like to hear from the Boss though. I know he’s capable of being a rational human being with a valid argument rather than a nonsensical bandwagon opinion.
                                                  But all I’m hearing are fart noises.

                                                2. You mean Yoshi does not exist? And imply that a game is shit because you are too ignorant to even care about it? Ok, sounds legit. Dumbass

                                                  1. It IS shit…it doesn’t matter if Nintendo releases 1347654 games in a month if they’re all fucking dogshit like wooly world!

                                                    1. LOL. You’re the fucking dogshit here! If you played Yoshi, you would not be an asshole. And Art Academy came out in late June, too.

                                                      1. YAAAAAYYY ART ACADEMY!!!! it’s a shame we don’t get something valuable like a metroid or fire emblem BUT ARRRTTT ACADEMY!!!!!!!/sarcasm

                                                        1. Least we know Fire Emblem is coming. For Metroid, we only got this new game trying to use the Metroid name to sell. It’s Star Fox Adventures all over again! *twitch*

                                                        2. i bought wii u last year for zelda this year. not for this pile of crap. have ps4 now have games that i like not that i have to try and like because there is fuck all coming out.

                                                        3. I’m just commenting to say that anyone in this thread who thinks graphics are so much more important than gameplay that they can’t seem to have fun if it doesn’t looks as good as technologically possible… Why even buy a Nintendo console? Sony has plenty of movie-wannabe games with great graphics (at the expense of a stable framerate, of course) that let you shut your brain off with little effort.

                                                          Better yet, if you really care more about how things look than how it plays, go watch a goddamn movie. I hear Avengers 2 is alright.

                                                          1. I think there needs to be middle ground. (I’m sure you’d agree.)
                                                            We live in 2015. We’re allowed to expect pretty good looking content. Also, I believe WiiU’s graphics are often less than desired, not because of the hardware (exclusively) but also because Nintendo IS rushing. They DID say Windwaker was their playing with HD graphics… I mean wow…so behind the ball.

                                                            To your point, people obsessing over graphics should take a chill pill, but many Nintendo fans put up with shit Wii graphics long, long enough. We deserve nice things on the WiiU.

                                                            1. shut up and collect your fucking nintendo dolls. its not just about graphics its about games that appeal to everyone not just 8 years old.

                                                          2. “We’re always looking for ways to surprise our fans” 1. What fans? Your real fans are almost gone and 2. Yeah, you’ll surprise them alright just like you did with this year’s colossal fuck ups like “Metroid” which is not; but a last minute tack-on FPS shooter from the App Store.

                                                                1. While I appreciate all the contributions he’s done for the industry as a whole, his stubbornness and short sight have been hampering Nintendo as he’s unable to understand the industry standards in this day and age.

                                                                  And what’s the meaning of involved with the NX? I’m not involved with it, neither you. But to state that Miyamoto is not involved with the NX is inaccurate.

                                                                    1. From a technical perspective, I find it impossible to Miyamoto not to be involved with the NX.

                                                                      He was not directly involved with the first 3DS, yet requested Nintendo to pull out the second slide pad from it — which Nintendo added back on the New 3DS…

                                                                    2. Amen to that brother. I’m tired of nintendo’s constant attempts to “surprise gamers”! We don’t want to be surprised! We just want to play our fucking games!!!

                                                                      1. Unfortunately, it is and many wonder how the fuck is that even possible? Other M basically shit on Prime from being canon plus pathetically mimicked its FPS controls WITHOUT MOVEMENT, ripped off Fusion’s storyline, introduced nothing new to the table, turned Adam into an abusive asshole instead of a wise commander/father figure and…oh my god, turned Samus into the biggest female-cliched PUSSY in any video game series from facing her nemesis for the 7 billionth fucking time!

                                                                        This new turn once again degraded the Metroid Prime name by basically making itself look like a generic, casual FPS mobile game that I swear I just saw in the Apple App Store the other day and also turned Metroid into fucking space version of EA’s FIFA 15. X(

                                                                          1. Stick a dick in it already nobody gives two shits what you say quadassess commander. Fuck off with your stupid ass role playing it’s so pathetic that you even waste all your days doing it. Clearly you have no friends and so you pretend to be an evolved robot who doesn’t need them in order to justify your loser-status. Just get off the internet and go jerk off or something for fucks sake man what are you doing with your pathetic life? Nobody cares! People will move on from this site and nobody is gonna remember you in the long run. Go live your life man like seriously. Serious life advice get out and do something for your own good. You’ve got problems and they won’t go away no matter how much you role play. You gotta get over this obsession. The fact you take time to make sure all your comments look the same, just shows how much care you put into this and it’s so sad. Seriously man, go have some fun for once.

                                                                            1. PC Master Race Agent Narud

                                                                              ||I’ve never read something that amusing, specially when you think I’m this “Commander” drone……

                                                                            2. There’s a few things Other M actually did better than Prime.

                                                                              It actually perfected the execution of the screw-attack in the sense that in Prime 2: Echoes I believe, you could only screw attack while in mid-air in a straight path, a lot of time making it difficult to land on platforms. Yet in Other M, you could turn in mid-air while screw-attacking. It was less clunky.

                                                                              Also, Other M gave the Gravity suit a ‘second use’ other than fluid movement underwater, and that second use although brief and near the end of the game, was when you had to escape part of the bottle ship as it broke apart behind you as the gravity was ‘in use’ as you could tell by the purple glow around it, and protected you from the suction of space from sweeping you away.

                                                                              That’s actually something Nintendo could experiment w/ more in a new Metroid game in my opinion.

                                                                              1. To be fair, it’s kinda impossible to implement a feature like the screw attack in a prime game (because of it’s style) without having to make some sacrifices.

                                                                                1. 1. Because it’s in third person so of course there’s no limitation for Screw Attack.

                                                                                  2. Gravity Suit? Last I checked, it’s merely an anti-gravity effect only used a couple of times, there is no purple suit in sight and no that feature didn’t change shit. Other M didn’t improve a thing for Metroid but did the opposite and Federation Force is making it a lot worse.

                                                                                  1. It was sakamoto who made the gravity and vary suits just little aura effects because he personally thought they “looked weird”. LMFAO what a massive wanker!

                                                                                    1. And that fucker is an absolute joke to take up Gunpei’s mantle. Look at Federation Force (NOT Metroid or Prime). That POS says it all about that asshole’s continuing damnation of Gunpei’s great work.

                                                                                          1. It’s probably a filthy casual left over from the Wii gen that never left for other pastures & thought Other M was the best ever and thinks they know something about Metroid. Probably doesn’t even know the franchise was inspired by Ridley Scott’s Alien franchise.

                                                                                              1. Where did you see it? The game is a First Person Shooter, it has the charge beam, missles, the same enemies with some that are new… This plays just like Prime except the morph ball. And has a plot that should introduce Prime 4. And is developed by a good third party developer that made great action, adventure and shooting games. So I just destroyed your wrong arguments with facts seen in what was officially shown. Go back at sucking stranga’s dumb cock. You’re nothing more than his bitch that does what he does: say things that he just assumed, ignoring the details from what was shown and go hate it like all the blind so-called fans. You know what game was considered pre-launch to not play anything like Metroid? Metroid Prime. So fuck you. Faggot.

                                                                                                1. So called fans? You’re clearly not a core Metroid fan. If you were, you wouldn’t be defending Federation ChibiShitForce. It’s trash just like Other M.

                                                                                                2. So you’re saying this game plays justblike the prime games bcause it’s a 1st person shooter? LOL! So does it have the exploration, iscolation, collecting upgrades to explore new areas, etc…no it doesn’t you wanker.

                                                                                                  Have you even played any of the metroid prime games before because I can assure you they’re much more than just some first person shooters?

                                                                                                  1. Clearly this defender is just a casual gamer who’s first Metroid game was Other M since there was no real exploration & no isolation in that game.

                                                                                                        1. Another Nintendo dick rider defending Federation ChibiShitForce. Go back to playing your mobile phone games, casual. We don’t need Metroid ruined any further by kiddy casual punks.

                                                                                                        2. Change isn’t inherently bad but when something simple replaces something so complex then we can consider the change to be for the worse.

                                                                                                        3. 1. I wouldn’t say their real fans are almost gone when most of their fanbase is people in their 20’s (like me.)
                                                                                                          2. Let’s not bring up that game. The less we think about it, the better. -_-

                                                                                                          1. Bro don’t even try their hardcore fans are in their 30s and above. You’re just the shitty N64 and beyond fans that don’t know shit but think you do. You are one of the blind fanboys who haven’t been here since the NES, so don’t even try to act like you’re one of the real long time loyal fans. I can’t stand the 20 year olds here who think they are old school you make me laugh lol. Iceaezma is the one exception, he’s cool as shit.

                                                                                                            1. “You’re just the shitty N64 and beyond fans that don’t know shit but think you do. You are one of the blind fanboys who haven’t been here since the NES, so don’t even try to act like you’re one of the real long time loyal fans.”
                                                                                                              Man, really trying to get under my skin with that little essay, huh? XD
                                                                                                              I actually never owned an SNES OR N64 due to our family’s financial issues. Instead, I had to grow up on my grandparents’ NES.

                                                                                                              Sorry buddy, but you try too hard.~

                                                                                                            2. 1. Believe me, that fanbase is close to its closure thanks to Nintendo’s stupidity of disgracing it like Konami, Capcom, Sega, hell, virtually most of the industry.

                                                                                                              2. Unfortunately, it’s happening and I hope to GOD that it falls and fails HARD.

                                                                                                                1. How so? Like them both, they lie and forsaken their fans, moving on to fucking mobile and even treated their devs like shit; let’s say Retro for example when they awesomely revived and changed Metroid series for them and the fans. How are they repaid? By not being entrusted to do Metroid again and after their 7 years of hard work on Prime, Nintendo basically shit on Prime by calling it “non-canon” even though it clearly explained some aspects of the main series stories like Chozo and their treaty with the GF plus mentioning Zebes story ark after Metroid/Zero Mission.

                                                                                                                  Do you finally see their resemblance now?

                                                                                                                  1. Um, forsaken? This isn’t a religion. They didn’t move on to mobile either. Moving on to mobile is what konami is doing, they’re just making mobile games now. Letting other companies isn’t saying other companies aren’t “entrusted” to make those games anymore. Finally, the Prime series was never declared “noncanon.” Fans whined that Other M MADE it Non-canon by nitpicking at details. (Granted, the story and Samus portrayal were terrible, but the game was over all fun and still fit in the timeline.) I’m a Metroid nut and I’ve gone over it multiple times, this “Prime isn’t canon” bull crap isn’t true. ALL the Metroid games are Canon and fall into place somewhere (excluding pinball of course.)

                                                                                                                    1. Forsaken: To abandon or desert. Does that sound like “religion” to you? Next time, pick up a fucking dictionary. You sound like those idiots who think “liberal” and “socialism” means a bad character or definition.

                                                                                                                      Konami ain’t the only ones moving to mobile and even think it’s the answer to gaming’ future which means cheap and conned money for them. EA, Ubishit, Capcom, Namco, Sega, all have moved to mobile for one reason only: Capitalizing easy money off of stupid people because they don’t know nor remember what makes video gaming fun and valuable anymore.

                                                                                                                      1. Touchy touchy. The forsaken thing was merely kidding as I know what it means.


                                                                                                                        You don’t seem to know the difference between “branching out” and “moving to.” Moving to is where they are only doing that section, while branching out means they are doing that section AS WELL as their main sections. Konami is saying they’re going pure mobile, Nintendo is not.

                                                                                                                      2. And about Prime “not being canon” part, go look it up in Google. It’s not that hard and you’ll find out just as easy on why and when Metroid fans are pissed at Nintendo for disgracing the series.

                                                                                                                        1. PC Master Race Agent Narud

                                                                                                                                  1. Damage Control a word that has lost its meaning and effectiveness. It is time a new word or phrase as this one has run its course.

                                                                                                                                      ||All 3 factions lost their meaning years ago, it doesn’t matter what words you all attempt you use……

                                                                                                                                        1. Stop trying to “surprise” us and stick with a formula already. Last time I checked, most fans wanted core titles of Metroid, Zelda, and Animal Crossing. Not idiotic party games attempting to fill in the horrible game drought. Thank god for XCX.

                                                                                                                                          1. The worst part is the game is being made by the same fucktards that fucking ruined Mario Party. So it’s perfectly fair to call Amiibo Festival game Mario Party: Animal Crossing Edition, but with amiibo being needed to even play the game.

                                                                                                                                              1. Miyamoto you’ve done a lot of good for the industry…but please stop forcing all of these “innovations” upon us. We just want to play our games, not be surprised by them! Traditional entries are nearly always superior to experimental entries!

                                                                                                                                              2. The only games for wii u he mentioned for wiiu amiibo festival and Mario maker. I’m toootttaly satisfied with my wii u Nintendo.

                                                                                                                                                Sucks for the people who supported it. Only to get outshined by their own 3ds.

                                                                                                                                                  1. The 3ds has been dead since Majoras Mask. There’s been nothing all year and next to nothing this holiday. Wii u has had tons of great stuff this year. Splatoon, Mario maker, yoshis wholly world, guitar hero live and more. Barely even play my 3ds.

                                                                                                                                                    1. Same can be said about the Wii U since Splatoon, not counting the fact the game used locked content finally being released to create a false sense of longevity & replayability. The Nintendo 3DS has had tons of great stuff this year. Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight, Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, Binding of Isaac Rebirth, Majora’s Mask 3D, Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash, Dr Mario: Miracle Cure, Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden, Etrian Mystery Dungeon, Lego Jurassic World, Puzzle & Dragons Z + Super Mario Bros. Edition, Rodea the Sky Soldier, etc.

                                                                                                                                                      But by all means. Keep trying to make the Wii U look better than it really is.

                                                                                                                                                      1. And they had 2 games for 2015 announced before E3: Xenoblade 3D and Majora’s Mask 3D. And don’t count 3rd parties, they always come to the system that sold a lot, even if it had been abandoned a long time before.

                                                                                                                                                    2. Nintendo has the worst game line up this year nothing really interesting is coming out besides XCX, Mario Maker, and Animal Crossing Home Design.

                                                                                                                                                      1. What about the games before the September-December lineup?

                                                                                                                                                        Majora’s Mask 3d
                                                                                                                                                        Xenoblade 3D
                                                                                                                                                        DLC for Smash Bros
                                                                                                                                                        Code name Steam. (It was a nice change of pace, but it’s an average game.)
                                                                                                                                                        Fire Emblem IF/Fates (if your in Japan)
                                                                                                                                                        Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
                                                                                                                                                        And more

                                                                                                                                                            1. Just because we got games doesn’t mean shit for how good the lineup really is…especially if most of the games are utter shit.

                                                                                                                                                              1. why racist? maybe you are very sensitive. and I’m a black guy so… dude, n!gga, japs… they are just words, believe me, I dont get mad when my black friends call me like that, neither my white friends. Is like when I call them white trash. stop being a sensitive bitch.

                                                                                                                                                                1. It’s funny cause when you typed negro I figured you were black lol and I’m white fuck the guy who responded he clearly has no black friends.

                                                                                                                                                              2. I’m sick of surprised as well. I mean I don’t want them to spoil everything, but absolutely NOBODY asked for another party game and a Metroid spin off.

                                                                                                                                                                Also give us fucking Zelda on Wii U or I wont be buying the nest Nintendo console. I just fucking wont. I’ve loved Nintendo for as long as I’ve lived, 24 years but enough is enough.

                                                                                                                                                                1. Zelda is for Wii U, wait, just wait a fucking months. The Zelda franchise complete 30 years in 2016, that is probably the year that the new Zelda will show up.

                                                                                                                                                                  1. If Ninte do worked on Zelda immediately after Skyward Sword then this could have been Wii U’s 2nd Zelda Tittle.

                                                                                                                                                                    1. I like having one really big zelda per console as opposed to having 2 smaller ones honestly, though I agree with a lot of things you say like how they should have thought of the ps4 when making the wii u and not using 2008 tech like you say.

                                                                                                                                                                  2. Thoroughly enjoying playing through a few games on my PS4 at the moment and ‘Maker’ aside I don’t know when I’ll purchase another Nintendo game. After recent high points like MK8, nothing they have announced recently will find it’s way into my home, it’s a shockingly poor line up.

                                                                                                                                                                    1. HollowGrapeJ (The Legendary Video Game Master And Anime Wizard)

                                                                                                                                                                      You’re not interested in Xenoblade, Star Fox, or Yoshi’s Woolly World? I thought that every Wii U owners would’ve chose at least one of those!

                                                                                                                                                                      1. Xenoblade is the only one you mentioned that holds any real value to me…and even then, it seems inferior to the Wii one as story (the best part about the last one) is sacrificed in favour of being more open world-ish.

                                                                                                                                                                      2. Xenoblade looks good to me, but I think I am gonna pass. It has taken far too long to come out and it’s been shown at every E3 for the last few years and the hype is just gone for me. Plus I haven’t played the first one and I really don’t feel like going through the first one and beating it 100% just to play the new one, but I won’t play the new one without doing that cause that’s how I am with games lol. So sadly I am most likely gonna skip it. And I feel bad cause it’s monolith not Nintendo and nintendo is the one who has been pissing me off.

                                                                                                                                                                          1. I don’t care at all about others hype, just my own. That kinda goes without saying. And as I said, I don’t feel like rushing through one long RPG just to get to another. And I can assure you I would be able to 100% the game no problem, I am definitely an expert level gamer. I also have a life and I’m older so I don’t wanna throw my whole life at one game anymore. There is life after games, I promise.

                                                                                                                                                                          2. Ha, that’s how I felt with Bayonetta. I played the 1st one first, Loved it, but still haven’t got to part 2 yet, Lol

                                                                                                                                                                          1. HollowGrapeJ (The Legendary Video Game Master And Anime Wizard)

                                                                                                                                                                            It’s more like ALBW but with multiplayer from my point if view.

                                                                                                                                                                            1. Well, I didn’t play ALBW, so I’m not too familiar with it, hah. Can’t say much about it.
                                                                                                                                                                              But as someone who hasn’t played ALBW, Triforce Heroes definitely reminds me an awful lot of Four Swords.

                                                                                                                                                                              1. ALBW was good and worth playing, but if Link to the Past is your favorite Zelda like it is mine, you’re not gonna have a new favorite after playing we’ll just say that lol. It is great, but Link to the Past is just special. To me it’s the perfect game.

                                                                                                                                                                                1. A Link to the Past actually is my favourite Zelda game, haha.
                                                                                                                                                                                  I was interested in ALBW when it was first announced, as I thought it was going to be a remake of ALTTP, but kinda lost interest shortly after when I found out it wasn’t. Of course I still considered giving it a chance, but after hearing from people that it was rather easy, I ended up not buying it.

                                                                                                                                                                                    1. ALBW was definitely a blast. There was a lot in the game and yes it was pretty much the same world as ALTTP, but with the new gameplay mechanic which really did open up the world even more though it was shattered apart, ironically.

                                                                                                                                                                                  1. oh they surprised their fans alright, but I wouldn’t call that a positive surprise. still waiting for my zelda wiiu before I sell this console.

                                                                                                                                                                                  2. “– perhaps not along the traditional line of what you expect but what we always try to do is work with the hardware we have.”

                                                                                                                                                                                    Oh really? Is this why AC: Happy Home Designer needs a peripheral to be able to function at its fullest on the OG 3DS and XL?

                                                                                                                                                                                  3. I can’t understand why these morons love to share their experiences with consoles, shut up, nobody cares about your meaningless lives.

                                                                                                                                                                                    1. That was nintendo’s stupid fault on making the Wii U slightly more powerful than the PS3 in 2008. If they thought about the possiblitity of what Sony had planned in 2008, then the NX wouldnt need to be rushed. But Nintendo is slow and stupid when it comes to R&D so dont be surprised if the NX is slightly more powerful than Ps4.

                                                                                                                                                                                  4. This just shows you it is better to work on games immediately when you complete a game then freaking take a 3 to 5 year break for no reason. Yet bitch about how long it takes to compete a game.

                                                                                                                                                                                  5. PC Master Race Agent Narud

                                                                                                                                                                                    ||Clearly the leaders of Nintendo are not what they used to be, on the other hand, it’s expected for them to defend this detritus of pure arrogance……

                                                                                                                                                                                    1. Are you that ‘Nintendo Quadraxis Commander NX’ thing that used to sulk around these parts? I have a funny feeling I’m talking to him right now ;)

                                                                                                                                                                                    2. I agree with all of us guys, I don’t like this year’s line up. I will not buy zelda triforce because I want a new zelda for my wii u. I’m tired of always supporting nintendo and they give us not what we want. No more support from here anymore until they listen!

                                                                                                                                                                                    3. Oh look, more damage control from Miyamoto. Though this is the same guy, along with Tezuka, that try so hard to glorify his own Mario titles and pretend the Super Mario Land and Wario Land games were so bad. As if the milking of WarioWare and the lack of a Super Mario Land theme (or Daisy for that manner) in Super Mario Maker wasn’t obvious enough. The real shocker us that he said Wario and Daisy does not fit a Mario platformer due to different art styles. What a load of fucking crock!

                                                                                                                                                                                      Nintendo: *Makes Splatoon*
                                                                                                                                                                                      Gamers: I don’t care about this random crap. Gimme Mario and Zelda!
                                                                                                                                                                                      Nintendo: *Makes Mario and Zelda*
                                                                                                                                                                                      Gamers: Nintendo is clearly retarded, as I’ve already said i’m tired of Mario and Zelda. And where’s my Starfox? And I don’t want it to have those crappy ground segments or Dinosaur Planets. I want it to be like 64.
                                                                                                                                                                                      Nintendo: *Makes new Starfox *
                                                                                                                                                                                      Gamers: What the hell? This is like 64! I already played this crap! I WANTED SOMETHING NEW YOU IDIOTS!
                                                                                                                                                                                      Nintendo: *Shows the Walker and more open level progression*
                                                                                                                                                                                      Gamers: This is way too different from the old Starfox games! I wanted something like 64! I’m done with Nintendo.

                                                                                                                                                                                        1. From what little I’ve seen, I don’t want. Just give me a core Metroid or Zelda & I’m good. Fortunately, there is a core Zelda game on the horizon. Unfortunately, the core Metroid fanbase is getting a game that makes Other M look like gold.

                                                                                                                                                                                        2. I’m looking forward to about half of them. I’m getting Mario Maker, AC: Happy Home Designer, Yoshi’s Wooly World and perhaps Star Fox. I’m waiting to see more on the Metroid and Zelda spin-offs before deciding on those, but I’m definitely giving them all fair chance. We haven’t seen all that these games have to offer, so until they’re out it’s not fair to judge them and say you won’t buy them. Wait until they come out and you can see video reviews and gameplay by gamers if what Nintendo releases isn’t convincing you. I feel like sometimes companies don’t show enough in their trailers and E3 presentations to drag people in. Metroid and Zelda looked a bit shallow to me, but I feel like there’s more to them. I think once games start coming out people will change their minds a little.

                                                                                                                                                                                          1. Don’t bet on it with Triforce Heroes as the king & princess in that game look like something from the filthy CD-i Zelda games. As for Metroid, the chibi shit is unforgivable. When I think of Metroid, I think of Ridley Scott’s Alien franchise, not fucking kiddy bullshit.

                                                                                                                                                                                        3. So ChibiShitForce & Triforce Heroes are being made simply for the sake of innovation? That explains every game that Nintendo showed at E3 this year. And it’s why F-Zero is being held back… because once again, innovating for the sake of innovation. Time to let that shit go, Nintendo. Only a small minority want innovation. Time to listen to the majority because ignoring the majority has done so well for you this gen, Ninten


                                                                                                                                                                                          1. I think the whole innovation bullshit is more about Nintendo pleasing Nintendo rather than for their consumers. Basically, they don’t care about their fans!

                                                                                                                                                                                            1. At this point, most likely. The fanboys that like the bullshit are just an added bonus for Nintendo as it strokes their ego into thinking “we did good for ourselves.” We’ll see about that when the day ever comes Nintendo only has 5 million people keeping them relevant & afloat.

                                                                                                                                                                                          2. Ohhhh BITCH. BITCH. BITCH. & BITCH SOME MORE!!!

                                                                                                                                                                                            “…Where’s that 1st person Metroid?”

                                                                                                                                                                                            Home of the M$ & Sony FAN BOY CLUB!!! LMFAO

                                                                                                                                                                                          3. Now. If y’all are done BITCHING & WHINNING. Nintendo has a good end of the year array of games coming. A very strong ORININAL line up where nearly everything is EXCLUSIVE!!

                                                                                                                                                                                            Now. If you don’t like what NINTENDO is doing now. Then WHY THE FUCK DO YOU EITHER:
                                                                                                                                                                                            Own a Wii U.
                                                                                                                                                                                            Or…..come to a Nintendo based website. & waste your time. Why aren’t you playing your PS4 or XBOX 1??

                                                                                                                                                                                            1. During all of your bitching & whining, I only could make out “I’m a hypocrite & I’m mad people are mad at Daddy Nintendo for what I believe is all baseless complaints.” You’re a hypocrite because you are bitching & whining about other people bitching & whining. That’s just pathetic. Get over the fact people’s opinions differ from your own & your master Nintendo, who’s proven they are out of touch this generation with most gamers, and everyone complaining won’t be so annoying for you. Most of us complaining are obviously Nintendo fans or otherwise we wouldn’t even give a flying fuck what Nintendo is doing. Not our fault that Sony, Microsoft, AND Nintendo are lacking in games right now. Otherwise, some of us would be off playing our PS4, XB1, and/or Wii U.

                                                                                                                                                                                              1. That is bullshit my friend. LOL!! So You think I’m a hypocrite? Pathetic even? WOW…Really? Lol

                                                                                                                                                                                                Kid…..all you guys ever do is complain about NINTENDO. From the time I joined the My Nintendo news community over a year ago it’s like BITCH-ZILLA has showed up crushing every bit of good news in NINTENDOLAND. Lol

                                                                                                                                                                                                Kid…where I come from a REAL FAN will stand by their team/ Fav Athlete/ Brand/ Company!!! Now I can see if NINTENDO were STILL doing like the they did on the Wii. They have drastically improved their course. I remember when they had nonexistent online. When the graphics to games were PS2 ish. Where everything was a big ass wiggle fest. Lol
                                                                                                                                                                                                I remember when I’d look at the NINTENDO game section at GAMESTOP & see a huge wall full of garbage! (Chicken Shot. Remingtons Wild Bird Hunting. Jilian Mechaels Get Up & Exercise! Lmao)

                                                                                                                                                                                                Personally, I don’t waste my time getting on a NINTENDO, SONY, or M$ website crying about what they’re not doing & how dissatisfied I am.

                                                                                                                                                                                                But YOU’RE CORRECT IN 1 THING. It’s your right to complain about anything, anytime, at any place.
                                                                                                                                                                                                So go ahead. Bitch all you want! It’s not like I can stop you anyway.

                                                                                                                                                                                                1. A true fan will tell Nintendo they are fucking up & leave their asses in their own crumbling city if they refuse to listen and fix the damn city. No point dying with a company too stupid, or too arrogant, to listen to their fanbase. So since Nintendo isn’t listening, we’ll complain because that’s all we really can do. That & not buy their bullshit. Unless you people bitching & whining about our own bitching & whining prefer we do something stupid like shoot up an entire Pokemon Event to get our point across to Ninten


                                                                                                                                                                                                  And as I said, that’s what makes you a damn pathetic hypocrite. You tell people to quit bitching & whining with your very own bitching & whining. You guys are definitely so much better than us. If you can’t handle the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen & go to some Nintendo fansite that does nothing BUT suck Nintendo’s balls like a good little bitch.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  1. Besides, maybe we wouldn’t be complaining on every other article, if not every article, if there were a few articles giving us good news. But nope. Most articles are about shit that just annoys us even further. So if you want to whine at anyone for all of the bitching & whining going on on this site, go whine at Nintendo for being arrogant assholes that ignore a big chunk of their fanbase.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  1. & THAT, MY FRIEND, IS EXACTLY WHAT MY POINT IS. Is NINTENDO perfect? Hell No!! Was I excited when they unveiled METROID FEDERATION FORCE? NO!! Do I wanna slap the shit outta the lead developer who decided “NO VOICE CHAT” for SPLATOON? Hell YES!!!
                                                                                                                                                                                                    But I can honestly say my family is enjoying our Wii U more than any other console.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    I only wish NINTENDO COULD DECIDE WHETHER THEY’RE GONNA TAKE THINGS TO THE NEXT LEVEL. OR START ON THE RIGHT PATH THEN DECIDE TO STRAY OFF BECAUSE THEY WANNA DO THINGS “their way”.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    1. People will complain about nintendo because they want them to get better by hopefully reading comments and other forms of fan feedback….and potentially changing things.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    2. I think the majority obviously wants a core metroid, animal crossing, kirby, etc… it’s not as chaotic as you think.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  2. 2015 sucks on both consoles. I *might* get Star Fox and Xenoblade on Wii U (after only buying Splatoon all year so far), and I *might* get AC house designer on 3DS, even though it seems like it should be a new feature in a mainline AC game and not its own thing. But, really, both lineups are wildly underwhelming

                                                                                                                                                                                                  3. The lineup hasn’t been great, and I’m more worried about what we’ll actually see next year. After “DKC:TP”, “MK8”, “Bayonetta 2”, and “Sm4sh” hitting last year, the only thing that could have pushed 2015 into competitive territory were if “Zelda” hadn’t been pushed back.
